    This is a quilt I will be giving away to someone that is ill. I am going to place a flannel backing so they can cuddle up in it. Have one cut out for a man. Thinking of placing Prairie Points for the border.

    Very pretty! I love the birds. I'm sure it will get "cuddled" a lot!

    Beth this is so pretty. I love the hummingbird theme. Are the hummingbirds embroidered on? This should cheer the person who is ill up. It is so pretty! I think the prairie points would be beautiful as a border.

    I just love hummingbirds. I have 3 feeders outside my diningroom window in the summer and love to watch them. I make my own nectar and fill the feeders with it. They just love it and come back every year. A pair nested from a piece of wire hanging from the ceiling in my unfinished garage last year and came back again this year to the same nest. I had to take it down this year because the ceiling was being done. They really do use spider webs to keep their nests together. I could fit my thumb inside the nest. The babies were so cute. One day I was outside finishing up an oil painting and I heard this humming by my ear and low and behold it was one of the little birds, attracted by my perfume. Thought you might like the story.

    machine embroider the humming bird
    blocks? I just made a doll quilt, with
    machine embroidered blocks. It was
    so fun to make. :D Great Job.
